Stud


I've been neglecting the blog again. My excuse this time is a jolly jaunt up to Scotland visiting relatives. I always feel such guilt when I don't update, I suppose because when I first opened the House of Harps, I posted every single day. But then again, no-one read my blog when it first started, so I'm the only who notices my failure to continue this high standard I set myself.

Ahem, anyway...if you hate horribly coordinated outfits then I suggest you don't scroll down. You just know I couldn't resist matching my shirt with my socks! The cardigan is a recent acquisition. I love the weight of it and the way it drapes; the stud work really is rather heavy. I am actually quite anti-stud, in that all the cool young things these days tend to jump on anything studded and its so ubiquitous now (plus, I totally did the whole goth thing as a teenager, and got sick of the sight of studs). However, this is a rather restrained use of studding, so I can live with it.





Shoes (Chloe), cardigan (asos.com), trousers (American Apparel), gold vest (Warehouse), thrifted blue shirt.


My hair was some sort of saloon wench style, with my usual quiffed volume and some loose ringlets to one side.

These pieces are so stunning and I'm dying to know; how do you ever keep your hair looking so chic?

I got tired of studs too!, after seeing them everywhere for the last years but I love these golden ones. I always think they are far more sophisticated than the silver ones.
That gorgeous old gold shade gives them a very vintage feel.

There's this fashion blog that I love and I couldn't help but think of you when I saw the Victoria Beckham editorial because there's a pose that totally looks like you! Scrol down to 3rd set where she's wearing her own design. Her pout and side glance are so you. I hope you enjoy. You're beautiful! http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/2009/10/08/victoria-beckham-for-elle-us-october-2009/#more-20495

oh anonymous! I don't know what to say....I don't pout do I?! haha no anyway, I do love that blog, I check it everyday. And regarding Ms Beckham, she does look rather good in the editorial. If only I had her bank balance as well as her pouting skills.
